Our physical health rests on a foundation built by our daily food choices.
If you find yourself questioning spending more for high quality, whole foods, consider reframing your thoughts.
View your food choices as deposits in your long-term health account. Think of the time you spend planning healthy meals and preparing them yourself as investments in your well-being.
Packaged and convenience food, while easy and often tasty in the short-term, comes with a price that often isn’t immediately evident. With long ingredient lists filled with chemicals and preservatives, packaged foods are also commonly high in sodium and sugar that quietly erodes our health.
When we consider over time the true price of eating unhealthy food as the cost of doctor’s appointments, tests, and medications for illnesses such as diabetes, high cholesterol, cancer or high blood pressure, and the missed opportunities for being fully engaged in life due to compromised health, the long-term impact can feel like bankruptcy.
Choose your food thoughtfully. Ultimately the choices we make most of the time for self-care (i.e. food, sleep, exercise and stress management) is what matters most.
To your good health!
